Hardwood Texas Beef Blend

Bennie Kendrick’s done it again. His BBQ sweet pepper meatloaf recipe starts low-&-slow for an infusion of pure hardwood smoke. Then crank up the heat, add a ketchup glaze and slice up the wood-fired flavor.


5 LB 80/20 Ground Beef

2 Eggs

1 CUP Plain Panko Bread Crumbs

1 TBSP Kosher Salt

1 TBSP Black Pepper

2 TBSP Traeger Rub

1 CUP Finely Chopped Red Sweet Peppers

1 CUP Finely Chopped Green Onion

1 CUP Ketchup


Thoroughly mix together the ground beef, eggs, plain panko bread crumbs, kosher salt, black pepper, Traeger rub, red sweet peppers and green onion.

When ready to cook, set the temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Mold the meat mixture into a loaf and season exterior with the Traeger rub.

Place meatloaf directly on the grill grate and cook for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Increase the grill temperature to 375°F and cook until an internal temperature of 155°F.

Glaze the meatloaf with ketchup and cook an additional 15 minutes.

Allow to rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
